F to R: Finance Department

FINANCE DEPARTMENT

In the last ten years Rye has continued to grow and the town’s financial needs have become more complex. The Finance Department is managed by a Finance Director, Cynthia Gillespie, who performs highly responsible administrative, supervisory and technical work in maintaining the fiscal records and financial systems of the town. She administers all internal and external financial reporting requirements, including the payroll, State (Massachusetts and Maine) and Federal withholding taxes, W-2s, and Workers’ Compensation. The Rye Finance Director is also responsible for accounts payable and accounts receivable, by billing, collecting and recording departmental fees and charges, daily deposits, financial account analysis and special departmental projects.

The Finance Director also maintains human resource files, records, and information and manages employee benefits and insurances. The Finance Director’s duties include reporting on the Town’s finances; assisting the Treasurer in managing the Town’s cash flow; working with the department heads to manage the Town’s budget; and serving as the Town’s contact for the New Hampshire Department of Revenue. The Finance Director reports to the Town Administrator.

The Finance Director participates in meetings held by other departments and committees in Rye, as needed. The Finance Department is on the second floor of Town Hall and can be reached at (603) 964-5523. Cynthia Gillespie also  serves the Town as Assistant Town Administrator. In this capacity, she stays current on Town affairs, assists the Town Administrator and is able to act in his absence, if necessary.
